Nature does not hurry, yet everything gets accomplished."
When was the last time you took a chance to pause, and just notice?
What I notice first, and most, is birdsong. Even in these wintry mornings, there are so many different whoops, melodies, honks, and chatterings.
The noisy reminders make everything else seem still, somehow. The noisy reminders of birds are so preferable to the pings and buzzes from our pockets and desktops. They are simple, and simply joyful.
Today, I remind myself to pause. To breathe. To notice.
